No-Till Oat and Rye Production – Virtual Field Day
By Practical Farmers of Iowa
Martin has been a long-time user of no-till and cover crops. It was his cover crop that got him into growing rye for his own cover crop seed. He then decided to further diversify his farm with an oat crop. This virtual farm tour showcases both rye and oats in the field, and Martin shares the lessons he’s learned about producing both crops, from no-till planting in soybean residue to harvesting and cleaning the product.
